    Those are boring names that have no color and don't represent anything about their host cities or region.


    Lots of the native tribes in seattle area wore red and painted in red, and green is already a good color to represent the area. If anything don't root for blue or lime green because the M's, Seahawks, and Sounders already use those colors.

    I don't literally mean color. I mean the name sounds like a business, not a sports team.

    https://mobile.twitter.com/home

    I hope this is wrong.

    First part of 2020?????

    IMHO they are botching the name/colors/logo/jersey thing by dragging this out.

    They could already be starting to get cash flow into the organization by selling team gear/merch, now.

  • Just click on the tweet button, then put the link you want in between the two with no spaces. So it would look like this with no space in there.

    "Seattle Ice Kings"

    "Seattle Bone Blades"

    I was reading up on some Norse god of skating. Ullr and he tied a evergreen branch to his skates.

  • Kraken is the only name being thrown about that I like at all. Since I can't have the best possible name (Freeze), I could get behind Kraken.

    Totems, Mets, Salmon/Trout/Fish/Steelheads/Suckeyes/Fishies/
    Fish/Fisheries/Fisherpersons/Dolphins/Mermaids/Fresh Fish, and so forth, just don't do it for me. Being that Orcas are basically the deadliest predators on Earth, that is probably my favorite non-mythical sea creature, though.

    If they were dumb enough to select Totems, I would casually enjoy all of the outrage and debates over a PI name being chosen.

    Problem with that is once the NBA see’s how nice the new hockey area is they are going to want to put a team back here.
    If they do the Seattle SuperSonics is the only name IMHO!

    Of course, there's the issue that, any other team other than the Thunder, won't be the Sonics and it will probably be, The Sonics, but.. you know, they arn't the Sonics... I think the Sonic name should just be put to rest and remembered, unless the Thunder come back of course. IDK, maybe it would work.

    I'm pretty sure that once Seattle gets an NBA team again they regain the rights to the Sonics' name, history, championship, etc.

    Where's the issue? They could both be the Seattle Supersonics. The St. Louis Cardinals (MLB) and St. Louis Cardinals (NFL) existed together from 1960-1987.

    If this thread has shown anything, it's that no matter what name is chosen a lot of people aren't going to like it.

    They fit the region. Kracken sounds like a team desperate to be cool.

    Edit- Also, the fans would be called Krackheads, and the arena would be called the Krackhouse. No thank you.
